This procedural vote advanced Harry Reid’s gun control proposals. The proposed legislation can ultimately only be enforced with a gun registry and the advanced legislation is a massive stepping-stone to a gun registry. The Constitution states that the Second Amendment “shall not be infringed.” Voting to advance this legislation put the Second Amendment in jeopardy. The Senate passed this motion on April 11, 2013 by a roll call vote of 68-31.
